Egypt: Mubarak Refuses To Speak As Trial Ends


Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Toppled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has waived the final say in his court hearings, the Egyptian television reported on Wednesday. “I have no comment. What the lawyer said is enough,” Mubarak told the judge Wednesday.

The trial of former president, his sons, the former interior minister and six senior police officers comes to an end. Mubarak is accused of ordering to shoot peaceful demonstrators against his regime during the January 2011 protests as well as corruption cases. Egypt’s public prosecutor demands death penalty for Hosni Mubarak.

At the hearing, prosecutors told Judge Ahmed Refaat that the medical wing of Cairo’s Tora prison was prepared to receive the ousted leader, state television reported, following mounting calls to move him from hospital to prison.
